The following birds are available for sale at this time. They are priced so the average person can afford them. So don't pass up some good birds just because they're not priced at several hundred dollars each. If you're at the other end of the financial spectrum, you need to realize that these are pedigreed animals and not street pigeons. The day of the five-dollar pigeon is long gone. They are priced so I can receive some reasonable return on the investment I have made in feed, time caring for them, etc.

What is a pigeon really worth? The value of a pigeon depends on three factors, and you can read about them here.

You will find some rare-colored birds among those listed. It is important to remember that we are a FLYING loft, not a COLOR loft. Our rare colors are required to fly right with the other birds. We sell youngsters that we raise out of our flyers, but we will seldom sell the rare-colored flyers themselves because we will be using them later as breeders.

I am selling pigeons, not paper, but almost all of those listed below have extensive pedigrees. I will provide whatever pedigree information I have on each bird listed. Feel free to email me and request an electronic copy of the pedigree of any bird listed here.

PLEASE NOTE: The last few years have seen significant increases in postal rates. Therefore, if birds are to be shipped to you (shipping to destinations in the USA only), the shipping charge will be as follows: $60 for one bird, $70 for two birds, $90 for 3 or 4 birds, $115 for 5 or 6 birds, and $125 for 7 or 8 birds to cover the cost of postage and a special USPS-approved shipping box. (Larger boxes not only cost more, but they also mean even more weight, hence the jump in shipping costs as the number of birds increases.) More than 8 birds will require a second box, and shipping on American Giant Homers (when available) will incur a 50% surcharge due to the additional weight of the much larger birds.

Payment can be made via money order (I do not accept personal checks) or you can use Visa or Mastercard by clicking on the Paypal logo below. Paypal is preferred.

Bird Information

1. SOLD 2015 Blue Bar cock no. 5870. This is a half-brother to two race winners. Sire is pure VandenAbeele and is the sire of the two race winners mentioned here. Dam is a Flor Engels cross and is an AU Elite Champion that was bred and flown by Perfection Loft in Kansas. She is also the daughter of an AU Registered Champion when mated to another AU Elite Champion. So we have here proven performance on both sides of the pedigree. Several children of 5870 have been sent out to futurities and auction races over the last two years, with one placing in the 2016 MVS auction race here in Ohio. Full pedigree. This is a pigeon that was on my breeding list for 2018 until today when I finally decided to let him go to make room for some new stock from a very successful breeder and flyer on the West Coast. - SOLD (HF)

June hatch indigo cock, no. 7266. This is a fairly large bird and is out of an indigo check hen and an almond cock. He is not a "typical" indigo, in that the normal "purple" bars are not that evident, but the presence of indigo is pretty obvious when viewing the flights and tail. I believe there is some other factor involved here, possibly one of the opals. Sire is primarily Janssen and although unflown himself, he is a brother to several diploma winners. His dam flew out to 255 miles prior to being stocked. Dam of 7266 is an indigo check that is a full sister to three outstanding racers, including a race winner and two diploma winners.. She is bred from a hen from Gray Fox and Harms loft when mated to a full brother to an AU Elite Champion. Price: $50

3. SOLD 2017 blue bar hen, no. 7401. Do you like them big? Because if you do, this is the pigeon for you. I had her pegged for a cock, but when I moved her to the cock pen, she immediately mated up and laid a clutch of eggs. I have extra hens at this point, so she is now available. Sire is a grandson of "Man of War's Soldier", an AU Elite Champion and 2 times HOF winner. Dam is a granddaughter of "Heisenberg", a large Janssen cock and my best flyer over the past 15 years. "Heisenberg" flew 24 races, was 1st home on ten of them, and scored diplomas in about a third of them, winning 1st twice. He was retired to the stock loft after 5 seasons, 1 of which we did not fly OBs, and was lost to a hawk while exercising with the flyers in 2016. AU Champions in dam's background as well. 7401 is approximately one-third to one-half Janssen, with a fair amount of Flor Engels. This would be an excellent mate for any of the cocks listed above. Price: $50 - SOLD (HF)
4. October hatch "White grizzle" cock, no. 7436, bred from my flyers. Sire is an ash red bar that carries dilute and dam is a pure white that is a blend of Houben, Janssen, Dworek, and long-distance Delbar. Both parents flew 100 miles as young birds and are currently on the 2018 old bird team. Full pedigree. Price: $50
5. 2013 blue bar hen, no. WHC 113. Purchased from John Beeson of Perfection Lofts in Kansas via Pigeonauctions.com. Sire is "Man of War's Soldier", 2-time HOF winner and AU Elite Champion. This is a rather small hen that has raised me 14 youngsters over the past few years. We also have several grandchildren that have flown for us and that have been sent out to futurities. She does have a crooked keel, but that has no effect on her breeding ability. I purchased her as a young bird and would still have her on my breeding list except for the serious need to downsize. Nice little hen that comes with the original pedigree from Perfection Lofts. Priced to sell at a fraction of the price I paid for her. Price: $75
6. 2015 blue grizzle hen no. 5191. Unflown herself, but her younger brother flew out to 300 miles and is still on my OB team. MacCauley/Mayan Wegge out of a pair of Dixie-Buckeye birds purchased in a charity auction online. Limited pedigree on dam's side. Price reduced: $50
7. Red Check Houben cock AU 2013 AA 43413 bred by Dennis Doyle of Texas. He bred a 4th-place diploma winner in 2014. Traces back to David Clausing’s “410". I only raised a handful of young from him in 2015 and just 2 in 2016 and 1 in 2017, which was a late hatch and therefore was never flown. The two 2016 birds were sent out to futurities and one of them placed 20th in the MVS auction race. The 2015 birds were either sold or sent to futurities as well. Unfortunately the 2015 YB season was cancelled in Ohio and the 2015's never got a chance to prove themselves. Price reduced: $100
8. June hatch blue bar cock no. 7217. Grandparents include a son of "Heisenberg" as well as two AU Elite Champions from John Beeson's Perfection Loft in Kansas. Sire is a son of "Man-o-War's Sodier", who is an AU Elite Champion and Hall of Fame winner in two categories. Dam is out of a son of Heisenberg and an AU Elite Champion I obtained directly from Perfection Loft. Full pedigree. Price: $75
9. Sale Pending  July hatch blue bar, no. 7269. Appears to be a hen, and I am pretty confident she is, but cannot guarantee 100%. Sire is a "cherry" (red phase recessive opal) cock that carries the gene for barless. He is unflown but is the brother to several birds that have flown for us. He is down from my own family of opals that have produced diploma winners as well as "Snake River", and opal laced cock that won 1st at 200 miles. Dam is a blue check/WF who is the daughter of an AU Registered Champion. A half-sister of 7269 was 5th vs 102 birds in the 2013 MVS auction race, and her half-brother won the 2013 Mount Airy auction race. This pigeon looks like she might carry the gene for barless. Price: $50 - Sale Pending (RA)
10. May hatch "white grizzle" (actually a very light red grizzle) hen, no. 7193. Parents are a beautiful pure white cock and a blue check pied hen, neither with pedigrees. The dam, however, flew several races, including the prestigious Ohio Classic Race in 2013. She was also 2nd @ 150 as a YB. Sire is unflown. No pedigree. Price: $25
11. SOLD Magnificent "Schwarztiger" almond cock, no. 7275-17. that is bred from two flyers: His sire is an almond bred by me, and he flew five races out to 180 miles prior to being moved to the stock loft. Sire is over 50% HVR and dam is a Janssen cross. Dam flew out to 300 miles as a young bird for Steve Jenkins and both are still in our breeding loft and currently on their first clutcvh of eggs. Price $100 --- Special Note: This bird is currently listed online at the auction site www.pigeondepot.com with a minimum bid of $100. (This bird does have a bid on it, so it is considered sold. If you are interested please go to www.pigeondepot.com and make a bid.)
12. Sale Pending  2017 barless blue cock no. 7022. Since he was a June hatch and therefore too late to fly with the young bird team, I set him aside as a possible stock bird. Since I do not need him in the breeding loft he is now available. His sire was bred for stock but is out of a cock that flew six races out to 255 miles and is a grandson of “The Iceman”, a barless ash red cock that won a 300-mile race and sired several flyers and breeders for us. 7022’s maternal grandmother was a barless blue that was flown as a young bird but was pulled from the team for breeding. She is out of a son of “The Iceman” and a hen that is down from a Ken Christopher Van Loon and a grandson of “The Iceman.” 7022’s dam is a barless brown that goes back to the browns of the late Bob Eaton of California and to a mating of my foundation “chrome” cock to a hen that is also down from the Van Loons of Ken Christopher. 7022 does indeed carry brown and there is a 50% chance he also carries dilute, which means there is a possibility of both brown and khaki daughters, as well as blue and true silver. Price: $200. - Sale Pending (RA)
13. SOLDMated pair of blue bars directly from my breeding loft. Both are 2013 birds, the cock purchased from John Beeson (Perfection Loft) in Kansas, and the hen raised by me. Cock is WHC 158 and is a full brother to lot no. 5 above. His sire is "Man of War's Soldier", 2-time HOF winner and AU Elite Champion. Pedigree of 158 is full of performance pigeons, many of which are Flor Engels family. Dam is MVS 865. She is half Janssen, being a granddaughter of my excellent flyer "Heisenberg". Her sire was mated to another AU Elite Champion from Perfection Loft. This pair is currently on fertile eggs (as of Feb. 14), so unless I can find a pair to swing their eggs under they might not be available immediately. Price: $300 for the pair. - Sold (HS)
